Last Monday, my older nephew Hendrix (I only have two nephews. One is Elijah) flew to Marinduque to spend some time with his grandparents there. His mom (my sister Rikka, who is a year younger than I am) and his dad are both working in call centers at the moment, and they decided to let the grandmother take him to the province until they are stable enough to find a house help to take care of their son.
I can’t imagine how they must be feeling right now. I haven’t been away from Svet since she was born, even for just a whole day. I see Rikka and Joey (her husband) on Facebook more often now, which means they are whiling away their time online to compensate for the emptiness of their house.
I bet if they still have their Xbox (sold when Hendrix was born by Caesarean section) they would be playing all their xbox games just to pass the time. Rikka is not the type to cry to me (or to my other sisters and my mom, for that matter), so I don’t know how she is handling her son’s absence. But she was asking me for funny movies the other day that I would recommend them to watch, so I guess they are really missing Hendrix so much. Hold on sis. I miss Hendrix too.
